Poland's president has approved the government's request to increase the country's military force in Afghanistan by 400 troops. President Lech Kaczynski said in a statement posted on his Web site Thursday that he had signed off on Prime Minister Donald Tusk's request to boost the number of Polish troops stationed in Afghanistan to 2,000. Some 1,600 Polish soldiers are currently in Afghanistan on a NATO mission in the central province of Ghazni. The new troops are expected to be on the ground by early May.
